Sturmgeschutz IV Ausf.B (Sd.kfz.142) Etched Set
Acu-Stion Set No. 4805
1:48th Scale
Review by Terry Ashley

TamiyaAcu-Stionof Japan has joined the 1:48 resurgence with this small etched set for the Tamiya StuG III B (Kit #32507) and is finely etched in thin nickel.

The set is very basic and just consists of all the engine deck and crew door hinges suppled in one piece or two pieces each and are rather flat one dimensional in appearance with engraved bolt head details.

Also included are stencils for two sizes of balkenkreuz and fender markings which could come in very handy to airbrush the markings instead of using decals and can of course be used more than once.

The marking stencils are useful

Etched parts

Thanks to my credit card and the excellent mail order service from Rainbow Ten for the review set.
